    85 CB450 Ignition

    I recently picked up an 85 CB450 in an auction and have been searching for a couple of weeks for a new ignition for it. The one on it looks like it was mauled by a screwdriver or something so there's no salvaging it. Does anyone have recommendations as to where I can pick one up? Everywhere I've seen online says the part has been discontinued and everyone I've called doesn't carry it.

    Are you referring to the ignition module, ignition pick-up module, or the ignition (key) switch?

    I'm looking for the ignition switch. I'm guessing the previous owner didn't have a key and just tore it up.

    This will be a salvage yard purchase. The key code if lightly etched on the side of the ass'y near the rectangular plate, once you get one you'll see the plate. Use a fine brass wire brush to reveal it. Any decent locksmith can make a new key with the code.
